Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) February 10, 2010
Did you know that it takes an estimated 4 tons of wood (approximately 24 trees) to make 1 ton of paper? One ton of paper will make approximately 200,000 paper time cards or 8,330 per tree. According to the United States Department of Labor, there were a total of 135,185,230 employed in the United States in May of 2008. Therefore, taking these numbers into account, if only 10% of the employees in the United States use 1 paper time card per week, the number of trees used for paper time card production per year would be in excess of: 84,000 trees each year in the U.S. Alone.
